Mineral Fibers with NBR Rubber Binder

5000 Mineral/NBR

COMPRESSED SHEET GASKET MATERIAL

ASTM F104: F712120-A9B3E22K5M5
5000-368835-edited.png

APPLICATION:

Durlon® 5000 is a commercial grade compressed sheet gasket material for moderate service conditions. It is suitable for a continuous operating temperature of 450°F (232°C); or a maximum pressure of 1000 psi (69 bar) at ambient temperature. It is suitable for steam, oil, water, mild alkalis and acids, hydrocarbons and solvents.

COMPOSITION:

Durlon® 5000 contains high strength mineral fibers and fillers bonded with nitrile (NBR) synthetic rubber. A release agent on both sides provides good anti-stick properties.

Warning: Durlon® gasket materials should never be recommended when both the temperature and the pressure are at the maximums listed. Properties and applications shown are typical. No application should be undertaken by anyone without independent study and evaluation for suitability. Never use more than one gasket in one flange joint, and never reuse a gasket. Improper use or gasket selection could cause property damage and/or serious personal injury. The data reported is a compilation of field testing, field service reports and/or in-house testing.
